The double negative rep rule has been one of the most strongly stated and enforced rules on this site it appears, until now.

I have received two negative reputation points within a 48 hour period from the member "Oddball" which were forwarded to senior administration, however nothing had been done.

The site's rules clearly state:

In order to cut down on forum abuse of the rep system, USMB has implemented a guideline that must be followed by all members.

Rep count is set at 20 per 24 hours.

Members may NOT negatively impact the reputation of the same person more that 1 time in a 48 hour period. If a member negatively impacts another person's reputation more than 1 time in a 48 hour period (2/48 Violation) the following will happen:

All accumulated reputation will be zero'd out
Loss of all ability to give reputation (negative/positive)
Loss of all ability to receive reputation (negative/positive)


All your other privileges will remain intact. You will still be able to participate on the boards.

Be forewarned that once you have been zero'd out and lost your ability to give/receive rep, it will be PERMANENT. NO EXCEPTIONS.


What is going on here?

I think Oddball would have been okay if he had waited another hour.

I don't think complaining in the public forums is going to help, though.
